Extra Capacity Space
Temporary solution for Hornsby TAFE
Hornsby TAFE needed a temporary teaching facility to increase onsite capacity for delivering Construction classes. The biggest challenge was the uneven surface of the site. FloorStak flooring system was used for immediate support.
L Series structure with a partial mezzanine was chosen measuring 25.00m wide x 40.00m in length on a 6.20m side height. A Charcoal and White Thermo-inflated roofing system was installed to minimise internal condensation and provide insulation. 60mm insulated sandwich walling panels were fitted with an 8.00m roller shutter door and polycarbonate and louvre windows.
The TAFE increased classroom space, with a structure that is easy to dismantle and relocate.

Extra Capacity Space
Healthy Snacks Company Install Additional Space to Cope with Seasonal Fluctuations
A healthy snack company needed additional storage for their over-spill of packaging during peak periods.
As a food handling company, the integrity of the building was a top priority, so a standard style ‘tent’ would not suffice. The company also wanted the ability to remove the building quickly should they need to.
The supply of a 10m x 40m building with 6m walls, twin-layer air-insulated roof for condensation protection.
Scott Law, Manufacturing Director commented
“I spoke with a number of companies. The overall commercial proposition and flexible finance options, combined with a lead time that suited my needs made them the front runner, the initial contacts, response and support sealed the deal as it gave me the confidence and assurance I needed.”
“What we have is a temporary building that can be dismantled quickly, but absolutely feels like a purpose-built industrial structure including fire exits, powered shutter doors and being fully secured and sealed to the ground. “
He added, “They were professional. Did exactly what they said they would do. Delivered and installed when advised, all costs as expected and great clear communication throughout from first contact to post install.”

Temporary Storage Facility
Thermo-Roof Temporary Storage Building
Resin Handling Services (RHS), bulk powder storage and packaging specialists, has experienced a 70% growth over the last three years and with still more in prospect, has found they have severe capacity problems.
Resin Handling Company required a building for Bulk Powder Storage. An Insulated Temporary Storage Building was supplied to suit their needs.
15mtr x 52.5mtr x 4mtr Temporary Building
A thermo-roofed temporary building was provided for their additional storage with the actual build time on site taking only four days.
The light weight construction meant that it could be installed directly onto an existing car park with only minimal groundwork required.
This building has proved to be such a success that RHS has ordered a second temporary building.
RHS director, Danny Heald: "We trawled the internet looking for a temporary building supplier. While we were initially drawn by competitive pricing, once the project got underway, we were impressed by the willingness of the staff to put in extra time to complete the building as quickly as possible for us."

Australia Post: temporary warehousing facility
To cost-efficiently manage seasonal loads, Australia Post temporarily expanded their existing facility to effectively handle their short-term requirements over the peak Christmas period.
The ATS team of six took only three days to construct the building. The temporary structure provided Australia Post with a weather proof and secure space to store and process the additional load of parcels.
The 15m x 20m L series structure on a 5.2 leg height, was a seamless addition to their existing facility and took just one day to dismantle.
Industrial PROJECT 5
Blast Zone Oil Refinery Buildings
These temporary buildings were supplied for use in oil refinery blast zone. They needed to be both robust and safe. They used a special heavy floor. They were supplied with a number of temporary buildings with soft-sided walls covers inside a blast zone.
The temporary buildings were specified for different applications, such as for the administrative staff and maintenance teams, to enable them to carry out their work over a nine-week period.
The project was made up of a self-contained village incorporating administrative offices, workshops, permits to work offices, and welfare facilities for a team of over nearly 1000 people.
Each temporary building was supplied using a ‘heavy-floor’ system, which has a weight load capacity of 500kgs m² and which is designed to act as the base for the buildings to eliminate the need for pinning.
Fast Track Building System Boosts Production Space
Fast Track Building Extension Adds Manufacturing Space for Healthcare Company to Continue Growth Trajectory.
Faced with a quickly rising order intake, specialist personal health care product provider, feared that growth might be stifled before they had chance to expand.
To provide a new 3,500 square foot single bay extension to existing factory and create an additional production area.
Operations Manager, Lee Trethaway, observed, “The new production capacity in the temporary building has allowed me to introduce new equipment and processes, and to revise production layout to achieve greater efficiency. This has liberated about 1,500 square feet of space in the main factory, so the beneficial impact of the new accommodation has been much greater than expected.”
The new building price tag is a fraction of a conventional construction. Cladding has been selected to match the existing building, giving a harmonious and professional finish. More importantly, construction time onsite after completion of the slab was minimal, with the project team taking less than two weeks to erect the building, the extension was complete in just one month. This was a major benefit as there was little disruption to the business.
The extension has a design life of 35 years. The completed building compares well in performance to traditional construction, complying fully with the latest Building Regulations. However, by using less material and being lighter, means foundation requirements were less complex. This contributed to time saving and meant that the embedded energy and carbon footprint of the final build, both above and below ground, is far less than that of a typical building.

Loading Bay Extension
A loading bay extension with the bays lined up to the doors on their existing building, giving unhindered access for vehicles to reverse up to.
The Impossible in 21 Days??
Yes… in 21 days, the temporary structure went from order to installation, producing a new 11850 Sq Ft loading bay extension.
The building is 55m x 20m, with bay size spacing fabricated to give unhindered access for vehicles, the building was supplied without any wall coverings, which changes the calculations for the wind-loading, so over sized chemical fixing anchors were used for the foot-plates of the building, to compensate for the increased wind up-lift.
Crash barriers were also fitted to the uprights along one length, to protect the building in the event of collision.
